Passe aux hélices (Propeller’s Pass) is situated at the south-east extremity of Magnan lake. It reunites Magnan bay with Brochu bay.

 

DID YOU KNOW…?

Named in 1983, the pass received this title due to the numerous tree stumps that are scattered about. These tree stumps frequently caused damage to the propellers of boats that took this pass, thus creating a name that described the place and issued a warning!
